My parents were married in the 1980s. My Dad wore his Navy whites… and ever since I was a little girl, looking at their wedding photos, I have LOVED Navy weddings.
So when Naomi contacted me to shoot their wedding and told me Chris would be getting married in this classy dress whites, I was thrilled! She looked AMAZING, too — that dress was perfect for her little pixie self.
The day was absolutely gorgeous, despite the smoke hanging over the bay (thanks to Washington wildfires). They got married in the bright, window-lined second story of the Bellingham Ferry Terminal in Bellingham, Washington (how fantastic is that?!) surrounded by friends and family and Jesus. And afterward they had the most epic dance party — narrowing down the photos for this blog post was incredibly difficult!
Happy forever to you, Naomi + Chris! Hope our paths cross again soon.
If you’ve never been to a military wedding or seen a sword arch, it’s the cutest tradition!
And a donut cake. Who knew such a thing even existed??
